From the Chief’s Corner: Code Corner Interpretation

Chief Alan Perdue

Question: Which frequencies are required to be included in a Public Safety In-Building Solution? Are law enforcement and other agencies required?

Answer in Brief:
While model fire codes state systems shall be “capable of transmitting all radio frequencies ... and be capable of using any modulation technology in current use by the public safety agencies in the jurisdiction,” the list of frequencies actually required to be made available inside buildings is determined by and maintained by “the jurisdiction’s AHJ or fire code official.”
